and conversation between susie and jean paul gaultier. i feel very fortunate at the fine arts museum because in fact susie mencus' son lives in the bay area and she comes frequently to visit the family. it is always my favorite time of in the exhibition, when she comes and i get to walk through the exhibition with her. it is so learnful. i wanted to share that opportunity with the rest of the bay area. one of my favorites, during the laurent exhibition, one of my favorite moments is one suzy stopped in her tracks. she said, this is it, this is what is true of any great artist or any great designer. when they do something, it can be shocking and avant-garde, but years later, we stand and look at it and believe it has always existed. i think that this is true of jean paul gaultier's work. i know that have been friends for a very long time. it is my honor to introduce both suzy menkes, fashion editor of the international herald tribune, and mr. jean paul gaultier. [applause] >> the love seat. [laughter] i just want to know, can you hear me? please shout loudly if you cannot. [laughter] yes or n
this. i do not have my gaultier touch at that time. so then it was like to make jean paul gaultier for ermez. no, sorry, to make ermez through the eyes of jean paul gaultier. i love that. then there was a death. it was seven years after our collaboration. i think it was good to go in, because my life was not with ermez. it was for my own company. so we changed. we pushed. spanish rudes, perfume routes. sounds very good to my ears. i am a quite truthful person >. >> is there always going to be a controversial side of jean paul gaultier? there was a time when you were inspired by rabbis. i believe you're in new york, there were a bunch of rabbis he saw walking by the public library, you turned it into a collection. you must have known this was dramatic and would be alarming to people. >> i should say that in some way, i think i have a kind of innocence. like that is not that big part of me. when it is beautiful, i believe in it. i saw it was beautiful. i wanted to show it. for me, it was so strong, the impression. it was beautiful. and with a lot of meaning for me. it was meaning for
the coalition a big round of applause and i especially want to acknowledge that liaison, paul kumar, i don't see him in the crowd. i think it's fair to say that paul was an integral part to making this happen. thank you paul for your great work. let me talk about saint luke's, in life you come to full circle. i first came to saint luke's when i finished school. i graduated and didn't have health insurance and i was pretty sick and i didn't know what to do. i learned about saint luke's it where people who find themselves in my predictment go. my mom was ill and we had to take her to the er. they saved her life. it's very personal to me. the test for me has always been we want saint luke's to be a world class hospital. this dealen insures that we get that. we have 120 beds. which is a 50 percent increase from the original proposal, but more importantly, saint luke's plays a more important role as part of the larger cpmc system. cpmc by making it a larger hospital is making a real commitment to ensure this hospital will continue to serve this community for years to come. it's not just the size of
the mayor san francisco. he was going to be here today, but was called away. but he sent paul anderson to deliver a message. [applause] >> not ed lee. but i play him from time to time. the mayor wanted me to appear today and he wanted me to welcome all of you to discuss these very important issues. obviously, with the amount of influence and impact that nightlife has on san francisco, that is obviously very important to the city, and to the mayor directly. it is so closely tied to what makes san francisco such a beautiful city, and so closely site -- tied to what makes san francisco -- what makes people want to come to san francisco and live in this city. it is important to what we do and many of the businesses that exist here on an ongoing basis. we have 16 million visitors a year. that is in no small part due to the activities associated with the night life and this city. that is not lost on all of us. one of the things that i think it's important to the mayor and myself as i sit here today, and i know that you guys are going to be focusing on, i looked out and i see so many pieces o
in one of jean paul's collections. she is a terrific woman and quite rotund in size. i have not quite caught up with her yet, but i certainly am no little stick. i personally thinks one of the things he should be admired for is not to bring the tyranny of fashion to women. he has, as he has explained, done a lot for diversity in terms of skintight but also diversity of styles and shapes, and i think that was the reason for a round of applause. [applause] >> there is one diversity also which is important, age. i should explain because you know in fashion, a terrible because there is always racism about age. one of the races and is in fashion which i am absolutely against. how could i be against age when i have a grandmother that let me do anything and what it, gave me optimism and positivity? i think people that are old and have experience, you can learn a lot from them, and there are maybe sometimes more sweet than the grandparents. i think age also is something important. i remember, i wanted to do what a collection one time with only old people, and they told me not to do that becau

speaker please? >> good evening, commissioners, my name is paul wormer. i was one of the folks who filed an initial appeal on the first formula retail store covered on the ordinance to go over and that was the ralph lauren store and we remembered at the first hearing when their architects said you know we have discovered people don't like to go to the mall any more for our kind of store because all of the stores are the same. so we are moving out and we are looking for neighborhood districts like this to move into. and indeed, just about all of the stores that are opening on fillmore these days are not formula retail because they are the first or the second or the third in the roll out of a formula retail bohemeth, athletic came in and we are just one store in a year and a half? how many? the juice bar on the corner of sacramento and fillmore. that offered aparently significant money to the landlord to get rid of coffee bean and an existing franchised formula retail location. it was evolution fresh, it is a starbucks, the first roll out of a major ai
